|About:||This is a one-writer operation here. Feel free to read, but please don't try to join and post your own fanfic. I simply wanted a place where I could have all my LJS-based fic in isolation so I could have a better tagging system: characters, pairings, etc.|
Please read the following before contacting me. Boring, I know, but it's easier in the long run.
Abbreviations: I've been in LJSdom for a while, so the abbreviations are like a second language to me. [[ABBREVIATION LINK]]
Content warning: This journal will include writings of an "adult nature". Writing with such elements will be clearly labelled. If you choose to read it, you have been warned and I'm not responsible for you. I will do my best to note sex, gore, violence, and slash (including femslash), but ultimately, you read at your own risk. Caveat lector/lectrix.
Copyright: Characters and concepts borrowed from L.J. Smith are the sole property of their respective owners (namely LJS and her publishers). No copyright infringement is intended and no profit is being made from these stories. Other material not belonging to me (e.g., poetry or lyric excerpts) will be noted. (On occasion, I forget to cite something. Trust me, I'm not trying to pull a fast one on anybody; I believe in credit where credit is due. It would be a simple oversight on my part, one I'd be happy to correct if it's politely brought to my attention. The plot lines I create, any original characters, etc. are mine. Do not repost, remix, "borrow", or otherwise transmit these stories without my express permission. If you run a fanfic archive and would like to include any of my stories, please contact me.
Credit: Some of the older fanfic here has been posted under different names/journals, depending on what I was using at the time. Rest assured, it's all mine. I'm trying to use consistent names now to minimize redundancy.
Feedback: Feedback is lovely. So is constructive criticism, but it must be exactly that: CONSTRUCTIVE. I don't care if you think my writing sucks (well, I do, but I realize that everyone has different tastes and opinions and that I cannot write something that everyone in the world will enjoy), but if you're taking the time to comment, make it worth your while AND mine. "It's boring" isn't helpful; "It's boring. The dialogue drags on and the pace is too slow for the action" at least tells me what you think is the problem. Do NOT leave comments like "This would be so much hotter if it had a/b instead of x/y"; you're entitled to your opinion, but if you want a certain element in a fanfic, either make a request or write it yourself.
Linking: Feel free to link to the posts I make here. Unless I royally screw something up, I won't be deleting anything, so the links should be stable. I like knowing who's linking and why, so if you could leave a message, that would be nice, but it's not necessary. My fanfic is also in several different places; go to [[LINK-POST>]] for more details.
Memories: I'm usually bad with updating the memories, especially when I first post something; I've grown increasingly reliant (nay, dependent) on the tags. I will try to put things in memories according to series and prompt, but realistically, the tags will be a better option for searching.
Requests: On occasion, I will take requests. It depends on how much time and inspiration I have. There are certain things I will not write (e.g., Damon/Bonnie, Ash/Mary-Lynnette, etc.) and I always reserve the right to do what I will with a project. If I write a fanfic for you, the fanfic is still mine, and the credit remains with me, though I will certainly credit you for the prompt.
Tags: As mentioned above under Memories:, I tend to use tags more for categorization. I will try to use the following tags for each post: characters in the story/chapters (generally, I will only add a character if they have more than a passing part in the story), series, pairings* (which includes threesomes, etc.), and sexual content (incest, m/f, m/m, f/f, etc.). For pairings, I will include the names "both ways": a/b and b/a. For threesomes (and permutations larger than), I will only have one tag, with the names in alphabetical order, because I have limited tag space.
